Our Solution

Break the Cycle of Vulnerability

Transition Home

Everyone needs safe, decent and stable housing, with an atmosphere of love to learn and grow in.  All of our girls would be forced onto the streets without Beauty For Ashes Transition home.  Our home provides for their immediate and basic needs, but our efforts go much deeper and further too.

Education

Education is the key to breaking the cycle of vulnerability through the generations.  Not only does education bring opportunity, identity, dignity and possibilities to exploited girls, but education can transform you and me.  Without awareness that modern day slavery exists, we would not see the need.

Community

We believe ending exploitation cannot be done by any one means, it must be done in community - by everyone.  Our heart is to create communities unified by the passion to end exploitation.  We are created for connection, and we can do more for each other and together than we can apart.

Callista's Story

I’m a girl who born as a result of a prostitution. I opened my eyes finding myself moving from family to family, house to house, hand to hand. By the time I turned 20 years-old I had lived with 20 different families. They were not relatives, each one of those families have their own routine of life, system, habits, traditions, and culture and you have to fit in, sleeping time, eating time, talking time, watching time, if they are conservative you have to be conservative too, and if they are open minded you have to be like them too.   It means you have to reformat yourself before putting your first step into each house. At the beginning this was very difficult, but with time it didn’t really matter to me as much as finding good treatment. Unfortunately, most of them they share the same rules. Nothing for free. you should be a babysitter, a housekeeper, a cook. Some families hit me or kicked me out because I didn’t do all what they want from me. Others I ran away from to save myself from being raped, abused, etc...

"All my life I’ve been like a prospector, but instead of looking for treasure, I’m looking for a family."
